For those of you out there who are using App-V but have been put off from a Windows 8.1 upgrade due to the fact that when you run the upgrade installer it forces you to uninstall App-V due to incompatibility issues, fear not.
Visit the URL above, fill out the survey about how your organisation uses MDOP and enjoy the download. I installed it today on my desktop which I’ve just updated to Windows 8.1 Enterprise and the Beta worked a treat. For anyone who might wonder why I upgraded to Windows 8.1 Enterprise even though it means I would lose all my applications because the Enterprise installer doesn’t offer the Retain my Apps and Files option unlike the Pro installer, it’s because of App-V. Aside from the Office suite and a few other tiny little applets I use, all of my daily use applications come via App-V.
All we need now is for the KMS Host update for Windows 8.1 to be released – Hopefully within the next 30 days otherwise my desktop is going to need to be given the rearm treatment.
